The intersection of 13th Avenue and Main Avenue (locals also refer to it as Main Street) marks the northern edge of Durango's Main Avenue National Historic District. Old-fashioned streetlamps line the streets, casting a warm glow on the elegant Victorians filled with upscale galleries, restaurants, and the occasional factory outlet store. Dating from 1887, the Strater Hotel is a reminder of the time when this town was a stop for many people headed west. The town website
provides information for self-guided walking tours.
